years old. in 1965, i went to work making men's dress pants. when ronald reagan got into office, he started regulating everything. before he got out of office, missouri was losing its shoe factories. in 1991, our factory closed and sold as several others. -- and so did several others. these people are not for the american people. they are out for the rich people in this country and i think it is sad when a democrat gets into office, they turn into bullies. they don't want the democrats to get a thing done. i think it is so pathetic. they are getting paid to work for this country and instead they are just a bunch of bullies. host: what about her sentiment? guest: i think vice president joe biden is interested in these issues. one thing he has worked and in the by president say is a task force or a commission -- in the vice presidency is a task force to work on this. these issues about jobs being exported and jobs leaving and about diminished security for the middle-class -- the questions that joe biden has thought a lot about. at a general level, he would be quite comfortable talking

has done with jimmy carter -- jump away from it. i could not do that to ronald reagan now, next year, or any other time. i have too much trust in him, too much friendship for him, and i would feel very uncomfortable doing it. >> some republicans have criticized mr. mondale for saying he disagreed privately with jimmy carter's decision to impose a grain embargo. have you ever disagreed with any decision of the reagan administration and its inner circles? following that up, where in your judgment as loyalty and and principal begin? >> i owe my president my judgment, and i owe him loyalty. you cannot have the president of the united states out there looking over his shoulder wondering whether his vice- president is going to be supporting him. mrs. ferraro has quite a few differences with vice president mondale, and i understood it when she changed her position on tax credits and buses and to extend the grain embargo. he now says he was against it. if they win, and i hope they don't, but if they win, she will have to accommodate some views, but she will give him the same kind of loyalty
, when you are president, and this is why ronald reagan lost his first debate and why president george w. bush lost his first reelection debate, it has been four years. anybody has gotten in your grill. nobody tells you what you think. he is not used to it. but the president almost seriously -- physically was taken aback as romney went at it. the romney folks knew months ago that the debate prep would be the manhattan project of their campaign. that was where they would flip the switch if they had any possibility to. we saw a romney moved -- who his family had been encouraging the campaign to let him be more of himself, less scripted. we saw him all come out. he has to do with two more times. there are a number of countries that will tell you you only get one single attack. [laughter] to apologize to any of the ambassadors of our exalted -- insulted. charlotte -- charlie mentioned new jersey leno. it abused me hearing the obama's cams series of excuses. david letterman did the top 10 excuses. number 5 was mitt romney's here is mesmerizing. number 2 was asked osama bin laden how i did. nu

before. >> it's been done a couple of times. >> now you're jack kennedy? >> ronald reagan. >> now you're jack kennedy? >> and tax cuts and auto bailout and those are big issues that got really heated between joe biden and paul ryan at last night's vice presidential debate so i immediately thoughthe person i would have to call on this to fact check it would be christine romans and she was available. thank you. so here's the deal. it just stands to reason that they both seem to say something with such confirmation in their voices and it's hard to say how this can be different. >> it's politics, my friend. talk taxes because i keep hearing this 20% across the board tax cut and then i hear the counterclaim, you can't pay for that. the math doesn't work. >> you can't make the math work. >> we have looked into this and the tax policy center says you can't make the math work. paul ryan's claim that you can cut it 20% across the board and keep it intact all of the while keeping it neutral and it says given the information available that we have about their plans is just not possible to cut th
thing about george bush, he is not ronald reagan. >> largely as as a result of the policy and priority of reagan administration, more people are becoming poor and staying poor in the country than many times since world war ii. ♪ >> if there's anything left ronald reagan trickle down theory it seems to be anxiety which seems to be trickle down through every segment of our society. ♪ if you give complearns thomas a little flower you think you have david talking. here is a man who is against everything that has lifted the level of life of -- [inaudible] ♪ i egg and butter many black men do a [inaudible] >> has hard too. he's remember rehenceble person. ♪ your words trickle down terrorist who face their agenda on division, exclusion, and fear. do you think middle class americans are in need of protection. ♪ the new republican majority congress took a big step on the legislative agenda to demolish or damage government-aid programs many of them designed to help children and the poor. ♪ >> the bombing in home city has focused renewed attention on the rhetoric coming f
of a woman he first met in elementary school. like every campaign that cross swords with ronald reagan, chicago's arrogance blew up in their face. the question is whether barack obama will suffer the same fate as governor pat brown and president jim my carter. the answer to that question is anyone's guess. >> joe, when you write i picture clive owen and "love actually" when he's typing on the twirt. >> actually he's hunched over a computer. >> it's an ascot. >> just that whole scenic thing. >> do you have a pipe? >> good column. >> thank you. we would the big question before, mike, whether mitt romney was up to it before the debate. it was a fascinating question. can this guy that saved and turn around other organizations, can he not save himself? the great question being asked by democrats now, did we buy into something that wasn't what we thought we got? can he rise to the challenge? i personal think barack obama is going to answer the bell and do very well. >> definitely. >> i think the big problem is they were so arrogant, the entire operation, toward mitt romney. >> no doubt. >> n
trip over the summer. romney, obama aides say, is no ronald reagan, more like chevy chase. combatting that image, romney met with a group of retired generals after a speech. the romney approach would be both more muscular and bipartisan. >> if you look at harry truman and john kennedy and the use of power by bill clinton in his second term, that is a much different approach than jimmy carter and barack obama. >> reporter: to put his vision into action, romney will have to win first, which explains why he made an impromptu stop at a nearby elementary school. at this stage of the race, the pictures matter almost as much as the policies. romney did mention the obama campaign's trump card on foreign policy, the killing of osama bin laden, but he seemed to give the credit to what he called, quote, military and intelligence professionals. romney will now shift back to the economy with campaign events coming up here in virginia and also in iowa and ohio. wolf? >> jim acosta, thank you. let's go back to gloria borger. what was mitt romney trying to accomplish with this marriage foreign policy
and strength as you know the governor reprieves quite frankly was ronald reagan's thing. and ronald reagan didn't go to war with the soviets. he actually was the one that convinced the soviets that it was pointless to go to war with us. to try to out build us. the real issue here is how credible is the united states going to be? if you want to position -- pivot to asia and cut the defense budget you tell me how those to add that because i can't figure it out. >> let me figure -- follow up on a ram point and ask both of you what should be the ultimate subjective of iran be quick should it be a nonnuclear iran? should be regime change? can we live with his government in iran if it is not pursuing a nuclear weapon? >> the president said that he would not accept iran with a nuclear weapon and there a lot of other issues on the agenda with iran, supporting international terrorism, cracking down on his people and the issues we are most focused on. among many it is the nuclear issue and preventing iran from having a nuclear weapon. now the governor has taken a multitude of positions on my red includin
done before jack kennedy, and ronald reagan -- >> oh now your jack kennedy. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: mike in texas. >> caller: hi, how are you doing? >> stephanie: good, go ahead. >> caller: i was watching cnn yesterday, and i thought that ryan had as much time as joe biden did to i guess speak his point across and i -- i -- the way i see this republicans say joe biden was being rude i say -- >> stephanie: on fox news when you hear rude it's charlie sheen speak for, winning. >> caller: yeah, exactly. if he is going to keep low beating ryan, because he doesn't answer the questions. >> stephanie: yeah exactly. hi, greg. >> caller: hey first time caller, really enjoy your show. >> stephanie: thank you. >> caller: all morning long on the cable networks the only thing they could talk about is joe biden smiling and smirking. i'm a political junky and if you watch that closely, every time joe biden smiles was only when mr. ryan was lying. >> stephanie: exactly. and every time joe biden smiles an angel gets its wings. >> charlie pierce wrote a piece and he ended it with
at a fundraiser said he seemed a lot like ronald reagan and that's a person a lot of people in the republican party hope that he can replicate of success of. >> thank you for your time. let me bring you back in. why now? if this is something that seems to be resonating with voters at least at these rallies, why wait until 30 days out? why didn't we see this governor romney a month ago? >> i think part of it is that after the democratic convention, we saw a little bit of an uptick in optimism in the electorate. we saw the president's job approval numbers get better. so it's not just enough for republicans to say, things are going poorly, we have to make a change. it has to be mitt romney connecting on a personal level. convincing people that his vision for the next four years is better than the president's vision. just the we're off on the wrong track is not going to work under the new circumstances post convention. >> all right. we're going it take a quick break, "washington post" writer and rothenberg political report stick around. >>> more bad news for drivers, the price at the pump continu
president since ronald reagan in 1986. there are no moderates in iran. >> well, you basically say, here's what you can have. and by the way, we need inspections and intrusive inspections. unless you give us the confidence that you're not cheating, we're not going to accept the deal. you put it on the table and say if you accept such a deal, you'll get real economic help. if you don't, you're going to continue to feel the pinch. >> richard, let me ask you on october 9th, 2012, i've been asking this question for two years. there are, of course, moderates in iran. half of the country is weste westernized, highly educated. and there are moderates, but they don't run the country. on october 9th, 2012, who runs iran? do we still not know? >> in the intelligence business, iran is right up there with north korea as probably the hardest targets to really understand. >> certainly not ahmadinejad. >> no. supreme leader. >> it's the supreme leader along with -- >> the mullulahs. >> aren't they intimidated by the revolutionary guard? >> you've got the people financially essential to the regime. seve
] that's why gerald ford signed the earned income tax credit and ronald reagan said it was the best -- it took over 2 million children out of poverty. that why i started the child tax credit, and when president george w. bush cut the taxes for high income people, at least he doubled the child tax credit. and when president obama became president, and we were losing three quartering of a million dollars a month, he increased the earned income tax credit again and did something we want dotted is not cap it at three kids. if a working family had five kids, they could get more help. [cheering and applause] in other words, this was a bipartisan american commitment until now. now you know, we're a bunch of slackers, us democrats. [laughter] shelly berkeley waiter daddy who worked hard to help her. john's story. steven's story. i was in northern california before i came here with four candidates for congress, two incumbents and two challengers. just think about this. it's kind of like you. like america.

and democratic chairman and assistant to president ronald reagan, deputy assistant to the president at the white house, served on the white house chief of staff . talk about debate negotiations. how do you negotiate the debates? what are the terms that you're looking at? guest: this has become much more sophisticated over the years. when we negotiated the 1984 debates, the entire agreement was encompassed in three pages and now they go on for pages and pages. take into consideration every single requirement as far as lighting and staging and how you're going to address both candidates. do you call him mr. president or m r. obama. the color of the set all of those sorts of things. it's become a lot more complicated over the years. now, the commission on presidential debates, who i think do a very good job, they get heavily involved now too. they're involved in the process. host: what do you think lot was made of the moderator from the first debate, jim lehrer. how he moderated the debate? the commission came out with a statement days after said he did what he asked him to do. these were the gr
have a conservative that many say is the heir to ronald reagan and jack kemp. you have a progressive vice president who the democrats and liberals are looking for passion. let's be honest, you also have two people who could factor into 2016 presidential calculations. if mitt romney loses, paul ryan is an early front-runner for republicans. if barack obama wins, joe biden is telling people yes, i might be getting up there in age, but i feel great. i might run. >> let's talk about joe biden for a minute. remember last time they said you don't want to come off as condescending to sarah palin or even sexist. does the same thing aplay here? obviously not the sexist part, but condescending to someone younger than him for a paul ryan who seems to be new? does that challenge exist in this particular debate? >> reporter: well, i think that challenge exists in every debate. certainly it was different to have, you know, you're having a man debating a woman. that's a different calculation. but you don't want to be smug in any debate. it was interesting, you know, a lot of people after the first
, but, ron, i want you to talk a little bit about this because this is ronald reagan when he blew his first debate against walter mondale. this happened back in 1984. he seemed confused. some people, you know, thought elderly and confused. he really came back with -- in the second debate. here's what he said. >> and i want you to know that also i will not make age an issue of this campaign. i am not going to exploit for political purposes my opponent's youth and inexperience. >> ron, does biden need to throw one of those at ryan there? i mean, these guys are not the same age. >> game, set, match in 1984. no, it's interesting. this is the widest age gap we've had in a vice presidential debate. on the other hand, what's interesting, suzanne, you know, they both are sort of unusually early starting politicians. biden was elected to the senate at 29. paul ryan to the house at 28. they both kind of made their way in washington, but i think the contrast between them will be enormous. joe biden can't reverse this race by himself. the race has changed, i think, fundamentally. you had a slice
talked about ronald reagan and the point that there were details on the table. >> yeah. can i say, though, yes, you guys definitely took the hit and you owned it and said he did not do a good job. but it's not like he did that lying down, karen. you all came back and you said that mitt romney was untruthful, that he had his facts wrong. there was all that, too. >> but he did. my point is that with regard to our own guy's performance, we took it. we said, you know what, he didn't do as well as we would have liked. the truth is that mitt romney did lie. we can't just let these things -- this campaign has been notable for the lack of truthfulness coming from the romney-ryan team. we just can't take that anymore without pushing back on it. >> you know, joe, one observation i made, joe, was that mitt romney looked like he had been an excellent student for the few days leading up to the event, that he had studied certainly prepared. it was almost like he was going through an oral board exam or something and he just shot back with facts and figures and the like. but you know, were all those fact
'neill and ronald reagan work together years ago. he laid out the principles that he was going to foster. he said he would lower tax rates. he said he was going to broaden the base. you said the same thing. those are my principles. i want to bring down the tax burden on middle income families. i will work together with congress to say what are the various ways we can bring down deductions. one way will be to have a single number. make up a number -- $50,000. anybody can have deductions up to that amount. that number disappears for high income people. one could follow bowles simspn as a model. there are other ways to accomplish the objective that i have it. simplify the code, broaden the base, and create incentives for growth. with regards to health care, you obviously studied up on my plan. in fact, i do have a plan that deals with people with pre- existing conditions. what we did in massachusetts is a model for the nation state by state. i have said that at that time. the federal government taking over health care for the entire nation and it was king aside the 10th amendment that gives states the
of the congress from their own political party. i'm sorry, ronald reagan did have the senate for a couple or maybe even four years, but he never had a full congress. that was republican. bill clinton did have a full congress that was republican, but, of course, bill clinton was a democrat. and so you had fragmented government. george w. bush had a republican congress for a total of a bit more than four of his eight years, though bush scarcely has the list of legislative accomplishments that could rival lynn congress done johnsons -- lyndon johnson's or, to be fair, richard nixon's. perhaps the 2012 election will generate a unified government, but it would certainly be foolhardy to bet on that. most likely, according to most observers at this time, is the more or less maintenance of the status quo in which barack obama will continue to occupy the oval office while the republicans continue to control -- albeit by reduced numbers -- the house of representatives with the senate at this time, i think, being up for grabs. so we should be open to the possibility that the current election will fit the sha
